Hidden Gem
 In the heart of the Myrtle Beach strip near Ocean Lakes is a quaint state park.  
 I camped in the overflow camping area because I wanted a single night stay (two nights are usually required).  I called the same morning to reserve over the phone. If you want wifi which comes free, DO NOT STAY AT THESE SITES, wifi does not reach the overflow camping as my campsite buddies can attest. On that note, the night was not crowded but the campsites are directly on top of each other in the overflow sites, be warned. However, my neighbors were cool, friendly, and respectful.
 The overflow is a close walk to the beach and the fishing pier maybe 7 minutes.  We were situated only yards away from the bathrooms which were clean. As of 8/20 masks are required for bathrooms and the gift shop at the pier. Security drove through several times during the night and other than the thunderstorms it was quiet.  Everyone at the park was very friendly.  
Beautiful open campground

Very nice campground, great amenities, very clean. Sites are very unlevel and there are sand spurs everywhere so definitely keep shoes on everyone, we had to buy our pup booties.

Won’t be back

I’ve stayed once before in a rental property and had a great time. The Camper experience however was much different. The staff except for the lovely gentleman who helped direct traffic at the gate was all very rude. As we got to our site, there was a camper still there. We called the office and was told we would either have to take another site or leave the premises until they were able to get down there and have the camper moved. No apology, no refund or future discount for the inconvenience, and the manager had a poor attitude the entire conversation. The sites are packed and the roads are small and the golf carts are endless so getting in and out and back in seemed nearly impossible so we chose the other site. We happened upon more rude fellow campers than pleasant ones. All in all we were there and had a good time as long as we stayed to ourself and our campsite but we will not be returning.

Beautiful

Great campground for the whole family. Love being on the Intracoastal!

OMG

The Best yet. We have been from the East Coast to the West Coast, and have to say none can compare. Love it

Great beach access, tight camp sites

We camped here in June. It was tough to social distance. Sites were very close together, but campground had excellent beach access and we saw a beautiful sunrise. Cell coverage for ATT and Verizon were ok and I was able to get some work done. Not one of our most favorite campgrounds, but you have to love the beach.

Our most favorite beach camping

This park is the best. Great campground, easy beach access, wonderful area, great for photography, wonderful staff. We camp here as often as possible. Fills fast, so make reservations well in advance. And a castle!

Cheap, primitive, rustic!

We camped at Halfway Creek in the Francis Marion National Forest for the eclipse.  It's a free campground, but there are no water and no toilets.  You can park in a lot just outside the camping area--some people sleep in their cars there.  This site does not take reservations, so it's first come-first served.

The actual camping area is wide open and grassy, but if you prefer more privacy, you can hike in a bit and pick a spot.  We stayed in the open area because we were a big group and wanted the best view of the eclipse!

Something fun to do is to visit (gotta drive there) the Halfway Creek Church, constructed in 1941.  You can also do a hike on one of the trails here.

Bring lots of water and bug spray and some trash bags to pack your trash/T.P. out!

[Off Halfway Creek Road (SC Route 98-S), located along Swampfox Passage/Palmetto Trail]

Camping with optional added fun

This is a water adventure company that also has camping on the property. You can reserve a camp spot without signing up for any river activities, but camping does give you a little discount on activities if you do decide to rent a kayak or anything. They have a very clean port-a-john by the campsites, and a hot outdoor shower + a regular bathroom at their outpost across from the sites. Very friendly staff as well!

Let’s of fun

Stayed for a week and it was a lot of fun. Rent a golf cart and ride around. Make sure to decorate it because there is a cart parade every night from 9-11. It sits right on the beach and has a nice pool and a lazy river. Some sites are kinda cramped while others are very spacious. When you check in they give you a paper saying to lock your stuff up like coolers and bikes. We never had any issue with anyone messing with our stuff.
